08-04-2006, 01:44 AM
ive just finished modelling my attack bike with interchangeable heavy bolter/multi melta and no blue tack in sight (or white tack or chewing gum or anything sticky at all)

i was thinking of writing it up what i did and maybes posting an atricle with pics if anyone is interested?

if people want it ill do it

This is exactly the sort of thing I want in this forum. It\'s the sort of tips we all use in deifferent ways at some point or another, so get the pics up and the guide to how you did it!

Well post it here too, then we can comment upon your handiwork as well.

well i dont want to write the whole article out again, as it was written with begginers in mind (the type of people who dont have a million attack bikes lying around) but the basic idea is inserting a pin on which the two gunners torso can rest in place. The fit of the gun onto the bar is good enough to hold him on even when upside down (unless you shake it)

here are some pics





If you cant tell i used parts fom the vhicle accesory sprue for the other gunner with some minor converting, the pin was held in with green stuff on the underside, after the photo i filed it smoother, although you wont tell when its painted black anyways.

I wish my assault bikes had the rail like that mine all have the weapon on a stand. But that is good work on the swappable weapon system

nice work dude ;)

an interesting conversion i like it, more mobility to the weapon makes a bit more sense!

now if only there was a good way to change the way the bolters on the front of the bikes look....

yeah i thought of that, but the new style bolters would be too tall and thn and look even worse. To be honest then they are painted i cant it being a problem
